“One Of Your Girls” is the third track from Troye Sivan’s third studio album “Got Something To Give Each Other”, which was released in October 2023 through Capitol and EMI Australia.
The synth-pop track was written about Sivan’s sexual encounters with men who still considered themselves straight and used Sivan as a sort of experiment to test their sexuality. Sivan spoke to Apple Music about the song’s inspiration and the emotions that came with creating it:
“I think this is my favourite song I’ve ever worked on. This thing kept happening where I was being approached by guys who’d previously or historically identified as straight. They were flirting with me, saying there was something in me that they were interested in. I just felt all these different things […]
[…] I’d always end up heartbroken. I think I knew I wasn’t treating myself with the respect I deserved by being the secret or the experiment. We wrote three different choruses and ended up coming to this sad robot thing, inspired by a movie I’d seen. Even that spoke to the way I’d felt: like I was expected to be there when they wanted me, then disappear when they freaked out, then be there again when they wanted. Like this emotionless object. And yet there I was time and time again.”
The music video was directed by Gordon Von Steiner and features Troye Sivan in drag, playing on the idea of gender, while American actor, singer and musician Ross Lynch plays his main love interest.
In 3 weeks, the video had a total of 10.4 million views.
